Now, LiveChat has been added to your website. If you have just signed up for LiveChat, check your inbox for an email containing a link that allows you to set up a password for your LiveChat account.

Once you’ve set it up, you can access the LiveChat app anywhere you want. Log in and start chatting with your customers.

Connect to a different LiveChat license

If for whatever reason you need to connect your LiveChat plugin with a different LiveChat license, e.g., you joined forces with another website, also using the LiveChat plugin, and you want to merge your support/sales team in one license, or you signed up for a new license rather than logged in your existing one by mistake, here are the steps to do it:

This feature is available from the 4.1.3. version of the LiveChat plugin. If you are using an older version, you will be prompted to update. You can do it in the Plugins section of your WordPress dashboard.
